BC and I cleaned out our apartment over the holidays. Boy, was it nice to rid ourselves of some of the “stuff” we’d been hanging onto. We got rid of an old TV, a VCR and a DVD player by simply leaving it on the curb. Hopefully, they went to a families who could use it. But here are some other ideas for our old school TV.

Hooray! BC and I are heading home for the holidays tonight. I’ve been shipping all my Christmas gifts to NC (because if I check luggage at Christmas there’s no guarantee it’ll arrive it in time) which means… lots of wrapping to be done in the next few days!

Truth is: Your garden can grow just about anywhere. As proven in an image search which revealed blossoms in pants, bras, cars, boats, purses and many other unexpected places.
Well.. not entirely true, if you have a black thumb like moi your garden will only grow a few days before suffering a horrible, completely un-neccesary, brutal death.
Below are my favorite ideas of creative carriers for plants using found and repurposed objects. Just in case you need to keep your bras and pants for… more conventional purposes!
